No More Instant Performance Payment Submissions?

Before they changed the submission process you could post things almost instantly if you elected to forgo the Upfront Payment and go for Performance Payments only. Now those are taking a few days to go through. I know that it says that after you post three things it should be automatic but I have posted five PP articles and they are still going through the submission process. Anyone know what the deal is on that?

I would check with a CE. Performance Pay only articles should appear within minutes. I've been at this for three and a half years so I've seen a lot of changes in the submission process and subsequently can no longer remember exactly how it works. It used to be that you would select Exclusive or Non-exclusive rights then you would select upfront payment or ... I can't remember what it was before it was Performance pay; they've only been doing the performance payments for about six, maybe eight months. If you chose non-exclusive and performance pay, it would go live as soon as all the messages got from your computer through the internet to their servers through the magic of cyberspace. And as far as I knew that was how it worked up until about three months ago (when my loser uninspired self submitted my most recent article )

Thanks! I managed to get one published without having to wait a week! Now I feel like a complete dork for not reading the little blurb on the submission page about it.

Mine all submits immediately...AC can be tricky with your computer cache and not update right away sometimes though I know

Wow, I didn't hear anything about that...but that might be because they have forgotten all about me. If haven't posted a submission to the site in about 8 weeks or so. I do check the site regularly and didn't see anything. As long as they remember to send me my monthly performance payments...lol. I guess it's time to submit something new!

That is all based on what you submit, I was told. If you have really good content then it gets accepted immediantly. I have been too busy to submit anything this week; but the last time I did it was immediatly accpeted and posted on the site live.
